RESIST OVER 4TH OF JULY TO DEFEAT TRUMPCARE

#KillTheBill
#NoCutsNoCaps
#AmericanDeathCareAct

Trumpcare/AHCA/BRCA hurts America.  And it hurts Oregon.  Trumpcare will mean
• the number of uninsured in Oregon will triple by 2021
• 440,000 Oregonians are at risk to lose health coverage
• Oregon will face a $6.2 BILLION cost shift due to Medicaid cuts
• 23,000 jobs will be lost

We had a victory this past week when Trumpcare stalled in the Senate but the bill is still alive.  We CANNOT let up.  Mitch McConnell is working to have a vote when the Senate returns after the 4th of July recess http://bit.ly/2tpMpcc.

WE MUST RESIST while Senators are at home for the 4th of July.

Here is a game plan for the 4th of July recess:
•  Call both Senators and your Reps DAILY. They need our support to lead the resistance against Trumpcare.
•  Attend Senator Wyden and Merkley “IT’S NOT OVER” Rallies against Trumpcare on July 5th/ 6th and/or town halls; details here: http://bit.ly/2qwYTxc
•  Help friends and family in red states tell their “swing” senators to vote NO on Trumpcare https://www.trumpcareten.org/.
•  Check Indivisible Oregon’s Facebook page next week for daily tailored actions to resist Trumpcare over the holiday.

STAY LOUD to defeat Trumpcare!!

 ————————————————————————————
**ACTION 1: CALL BOTH SENATORS**

VOICEMAILS COUNT TOO.  KEEP CALLING UNTIL YOU CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE WITH A PERSON OR A MACHINE.

SAMPLE SCRIPT
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I want to thank Senator [--] for standing up against Trumpcare and leading the resistance in the Senate.  Please know that I will continue to call and fight against Trumpcare. Together we can stop this bill in the Senate.“

—————————————————————————————
 **ACTION 2:  CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE

VOICEMAILS COUNT TOO.  KEEP CALLING UNTIL YOU CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE WITH A PERSON OR A MACHINE.

SCRIPT FOR EVERYONE BUT WALDEN: “My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon.  Thank you for voting NO on Trumpcare in the House.  Please do all you can to speak out against the Senate bill to help make sure it doesn’t come up for a vote after the 4th of July recess.

SCRIPT FOR GREG WALDEN: “My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I am appalled that Representative Walden’s was an architect of Trumpcare in the House. I’m aghast at what is happening with the bill in the Senate.  I will remember his role and his vote come November 2018.

—————————————————————————————
 **ACTION 3: CALL EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN RED STATES, esp. AK, AR, AZ, CO, LA, ME, NV, OH, PA, WI, WV

Ask them to tell their Senators to vote NO on Trumpcare – no matter what deals are offered over the 4th of July recess.  Then send them to https://www.trumpcareten.org/ (The Indivisible Guide’s site for all the low down on the fight against Trumpcare).
